Hi all, Does anyone have a suggestion for a product that gives the hair results similar to a Braziliian Blowout? Over the past few years my hair was just getting more and more dry and lifeless-and no gloss! So I finally got a Brazilian Blowout and was amazed that it put the hair-weight and lushness back. But the problem is is that they say the Braziliian formula contains bad chemicals and is very costly to do every three months. Any suggestion for leave in products that give similar results? ... Sun, 5 Feb 2012 15:20:17 EST How many makeup brushes you you have? I hear over and over that having the right brushes are very important to applying make up correctly.

Someone gave me a tube of some. So I try to remember to put it on under my foundation -and always wonder if makes a difference. Wondering what a good primer should do..Isn't it bascially to fill in the gaps. pores,etc? Also wondering what primer brand do most use? :) Sun, 22 Jan 2012 14:50:12 EST Why is MAC is considered the best? Hi all, I am wondering why MAC makeup is considered one of the best products. From what I hear and have seen the foundation in particular seems great. I'd really be interested in hearing from individuals who have tried MAC or use MAC regularly. The main reason I'm wondering is because I really feel like I should buy only MAC makeup and stop looking at other brands.(?) Also ,for those that have had one, do you think it's worth paying for one of their make up lessons? Thanks! :) Sun, 8 Jan 2012 16:37:37 EST New Makeup Lover Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> I have been on SP for a while now but severe back pain prevented me from working out and my weight went up.

My name's Mary and I live in the California Wine Country. <BR> <BR> I was heavily into hair and makeup as a teenager but gave up on it for several reasons. My father believed we only have bodies to serve as wheels for our brains and became irate and verbally abusive when I'd fuss with makeup, etc. And my MIL used to say that I looked like "a painted doll," her slang term for hooker. <BR> <BR> I want it back! But I don't have the faintest idea how to do hair or makeup. I'm hoping to lea...
